Adedamola ‘Adeherself’ Adewale, a social media comedienne, says her recent ordeal with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has taken a toll on her.
In an emotional video shared on her Instagram page, the 20-year-old social media influencer revealed she has been battling depression since the incident happened.
The comedienne said she had lost the zeal to produce comedy skits among others, explaining that the more she tries, the harder it becomes.
She pleaded with her fans who have been reaching out to her over her seeming hiatus from social media to bear with her, promising to return stronger.
Adeherself also appreciated her parents and manager who have been working round the clock to ensure she does not get depressed.
“The truth remains that l have been trying my best not to fall into depression and thanks to my parents as well as manager. They went as far as getting a counselor for me from the US. It’s not been easy for me but l have been trying my best not to get down,” she said while battling tears.
“I just want you guys to be patient with me. Social media is not just something that l want to meddle with right now. A lot of things have happened, months have passed, weeks, days, hours, minutes and seconds. 44 days in the cell was no joke and it’s not something that l will pray for my enemy to go through.
“I have been trying hard, but depression keeps coming. I tried to do videos, skits and others that but it’s not just working. The energy is no longer the same. Depression is real, l won’t lie and l have been trying not to be depressed.”
The EFCC had arrested the internet sensation on June 16 and remanded her in its custody for weeks.
She, however, regained freedom on July 24, after meeting her bail conditions which included payment of N500,000 and provision of two sureties with reliable means of income.
